Before Wiki Leaked

Thu, 10/31/2013 - 12:00
Why are conspiracies rarely good? With the exception of Operation Valkyrie, the failed conspiracy to kill Hitler, conspiracies are mostly, in the wise words of Will Smith, guys who “were up to no good.” Why don’t people conspire to pick up trash along the highway or help underprivileged children? Instead it’s always Cold War this, and government cover up that. One good thing to come from all this intrigue is the secret agent man. He’s smart, handsome, and a little bit dangerous—unless you happen to be his girlfriend or female Continue Reading

2013 World Series

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 12:00
To be a baseball fan requires a certain amount of patience. It has one of the longest seasons in professional sports, asking fans to tune in for (or record on their TiVo!) 162 games from April to October – and that is just the regular season. But ask anyone, the MLB’s playoffs provide as much, if not more drama than anything else on your TiVo – where the fate of an entire season can hinge on a single pitch. And here we are, with November on the horizon, and the Continue Reading
